The same thing will happen if the Republican party compromises on amnesty. The GOP will think they have bought peace and will use the concession to “outreach” to Hispanics, but the multi-million dollar interest groups won’t abide.
Understand something — I have been ambivalent about the immigration issue for many years. But the vote this week was extremely racially polarized, and deliberately so. Sixty-two percent of whites voted for Romney. Ninety percent of black voters and 71% of Hispanic voters went for Obama. That’s how the race groups working for the Democrat Party want it. They are very very effective at keeping the races politically polarized.
Those numbers are frightening, and no amount of traditional “outreach” is going to change them, even a new-found acceptance of illegal immigration. Those calling for outreach to minorities are only half right. Something needs to be done, but they naively prescribe the mistakes of the past that will forever alter the demographic character of America, without altering the vote totals for the GOP. In time, the electoral percentages will actually grow worse for the GOP after concessions on immigration. More drastic and daring efforts are needed.
There is only one way to obtain the support of Hispanics and other minorities eventually. Conservatives must first confront and destroy the credibility of the racial interest groups that serve as the gatekeepers to these communities. Once-relevant and noble groups like the NAACP, and others less noble such as LULAC and MALDEF, must be exposed as the frauds that they have become in 2012. Their finances and racialist agenda must be revealed and lampooned. Their racial extortion of corporate America must be confronted. The entire political operation of these groups must be vivisected by some of the brightest investigative and journalistic conservative minds.
Otherwise, the skilled and experienced racial-antagonism operation of these racial organizations will keep the herd together, voting in solid blocks no matter how much “outreach” the GOP conducts after agreeing to amnesty.
Here is the problem: few in the Republican Party have the guts to do it. They fear being called racists more than they fear losing elections. They would rather suffer a dozen defeats like Tuesday night than be called racist for going after the corrupt racial groups that prevent GOP outreach to minorities.
In fact, many elected Republicans, including some governors, fear the wrath of these organizations as much as the arrival of the pox. Nothing terrifies them more than an NAACP press conference.
So the talking heads and bloggers can moan about the need to “reach out” to minorities. But until Republicans find the guts to go after the well-funded groups that churn racial antagonism and keep minorities politically in line, nothing will work. You can’t appeal to minorities when a thick fearless establishment funded with hundreds of millions of dollars of corporate and foundation money is working to preserve the status quo, and nobody has the guts to fight them.
